Director of Graduate Admissions
Graduate programs I cover:
Public Health, Occupational Therapy, Occupational Therapy Bridge, Occupational Therapy Doctorate, and Doctor of Health Science.
What I like most about my role:
Connecting with prospective students and helping them figure out the best way to get a higher education degree. Some students do not know where to start, and I love knowing that I can guide them and help them take the first step toward their goal.
My favorite thing about Bay Path University:
The amount of personal attention each student gets — from their first inquiry with admissions to their graduation, and even as an alum.
The most important part of an application:
The essay. A prospective student can let us know exactly why they want a graduate degree from Bay Path University and why the degree is important to them. It is the place to open up and share personal stories, which show us how a student is unique and will contribute to the Bay Path University community.
Advice about applying to grad school:
Apply early. Students who wait until the last minute can end up rushing through the application and forget to send important information needed for admission. By applying early, students can alleviate stress.
My favorite motto or quote:
"Make it work.” No matter how hard something is, you can get it done and make it work in the end.

A fun fact is that I came to the U.S. from Russia when I was 12 and skipped the 6th grade. I am passionate about being organized and planning ahead. (I’d be absolutely lost without my planner!) I love spending time with my husband, family, and friends.
